Registering for courses
It is your responsibility to register in your courses and ensure that the courses you select meet the program and graduation requirements as outlined in the information above.
Use the online Academic Calendar to explore possible courses of interest and to check that you meet prerequisites. You will register for courses using the registration system found in mymru.ca, Register & Pay tab.
Visit our Tutorials page for useful videos to guide you on using mymru, our degree audit system (mruGradU8), course descriptions and how to register for your courses.
Tracking your degree progress
mruGradU8 is a program audit system and advising tool designed to assist you in reviewing your academic history, identifying requirements you completed and those that are still needed for graduation. As you move through your degree, mruGradU8 will become a great planning tool for you to measure your progress.
You will login to mruGradU8 through your mymru.ca account, under the ‘My Program’ tab. When you click on the icon or follow the link, your audit will open.
In order to ensure that your curriculum is current, please click the ‘Process New’ tab at the top of the audit every time that you login to mruGradU8.
The information in your audit is separated into three sections:
- Core and/or Major Requirements
- General Education (GNED) Requirements
Each semester, information about your course registration will be added to your audit so you can see which courses you register in and which ones you complete. This will be a great tool for you and your advisor to use to ensure that the courses you are taking will meet graduation requirements for your program.
Please visit this page for more information about mruGradU8, including frequently asked questions.
Your academic advisors, Bonnie Mui and Jill Yaeck, are here to support you with your start in the Bachelor of Nursing. You can contact them by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about the course selection as outlined in this guide, transfer credit, and New Student Orientation.
